It’s not what you look at that matters. It’s what you see – Thoreau. When architecture attempts to merge two paradoxical forces, there arises a metaphorical meaning to what hasbeen achieved. The concept of ‘lightness’ generally relates to the physical weightof objects or materials. In the realm of design, it can take a surrealistic stance when used to alter the perceived visual mass and ambience. Through the manipulation of forms, play of materials and control of light & shadow, the concept evolves into a sensory experience.Save this picture!© Lal, Redz Photography & Vishnu RajanSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Lal, Redz Photography & Vishnu RajanLocated at the coastal city of Kozhikode in Kerala, the project was given an architectural envelope that orientates to the north providing privacy to the entrance facade. The house then rests within a completely inwards focused environment, separating both the social and co-existence space on the ground floor and the private space on the upper floor.Save this picture!© Lal, Redz Photography & Vishnu RajanThere are vast concrete slabs that float and interlace with each other creating living spaces, while glass – a prevailing element in the project – helps to demarcate the interior spaces, without dissecting them from the lush foliage in the external areas. The benevolent qualities of wood put to use at the roof level ensures that the ambient temperature within the house stays comfortable and helps to further the natural connect with the surrounding nature and greenery.Save this picture!© Lal, Redz Photography & Vishnu RajanThe cities we live in are becoming increasingly claustrophobic. Most client’s briefs categorically state that they want the homes to be uncluttered. The underlying reason for this being that among other functions it must serves, the home is where one heads back to for rest and rejuvenation.Save this picture!© Lal, Redz Photography & Vishnu RajanThis understanding lead us to instill ample airiness in the inner sanctum by the use of double heights and made the interior spaces completely illuminated by openings. Voids within the high ceiling and large framed windows offer unobstructed views to the ground floor and first floor. The zoning distribution blends the family’s common space and an inside-out living area adjacent to one of the fundamental parts of the project – the indoor courtyard. A sense of intrigue is created when the courtyard unexpectedly appears beyond the facade wall that leads to the main living hall.Save this picture!© Lal, Redz Photography & Vishnu RajanThe client’s role in facilitating this project is immeasurable – a young, educated couple with a curiosity and interest about architecture in general and our vision.

The said statement made by him is paraphrased from a statement made by Mahatma Gandhi in the contempt proceedings initiated against him by the Bombay High Court in 1919. This article intends to discuss the said contempt case against Gandhi and the judgment in that case.Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi and Mahadev Haribhai Desai were the editor and publisher of a weekly newspaper called “Young India”. The contempt proceedings were initiated against them for publishing a letter written by the District Judge of Ahmedabad (Mr. B. C. Kennedy) to the Registrar of the Bombay High Court, and also for publishing comments about that letter. The letter written by Judge Kennedy was about the lawyers of the Ahmedabad Court who had signed ” Satyagraha pledge, ” and undertook to refuse civilly to obey laws like the Rowlatt Act. This letter was published on 6th August 1919 in Young India with a heading: “O’Dwyerism in Ahmedabad”. On the 2nd page, an article titled “Shaking Civil Resistors.” was published. [Letter can be read below]About two months later, the Registrar General of the High Court wrote a letter to Gandhi ‘requesting’ him to attend the chambers of the Chief Justice on 20th October 1919 to give his explanation regarding the publication of the letter and the comments on it. Gandhi soon wired and informed the Registrar General that he was going to Punjab and enquired whether a written explanation would suffice. The Registrar General replied to him that the Chief Justice agreed to the said course. Gandhi then sent an ‘explanation letter’ in which he said that he was within his rights to publish the said letter and making comments thereon and that the letter came to his possession in the ordinary course, and was not ‘private’. “In my humble opinion I was within the rights of a journalist in publishing the letter in question and making comments thereon. I believed the letter to be of great public importance and one that called for public criticism.”, Gandhi said. The Registrar General again wrote to Gandhi saying that the Chief Justice did not find his explanation to be satisfactory. He then gave a format of ‘apology’ and asked him to publish it in the next issue of ‘Young India’ [Format may be read below] Gandhi again wrote to the Registrar General expressing his regret on refusal to publish the ‘apology’ and reiterated his ‘explanation’. He concluded his letter stating thus: “Should this explanation be not considered sufficient by his lordship, I shall respectfully suffer the penalty that their Lordships may be pleased to impose upon me.”Thereafter, the High Court then issued show cause notices to Gandhi and Desai. Both of them appeared before the Court in person. Gandhi told the Court that he had commented on the District Judge not as a judge but as an individual. “The whole law of contempt of court was that one ought not to do anything, or comment on the proceedings in Court while the matter was subjudice. But here District Judge did something in his private capacity.”, Gandhi said. He also added that there was not an iota of disrespect shown to the judge or the judges in comments on this letter. The following was the statement made by Gandhi before the Court:”With reference to the rule-nisi issued against me I beg to state as follows:-Before the issue of the rule certain correspondence passed between the Registrar of the Honourable Court and myself. On the 11th December I addressed to the Registrar a letter which sufficiently explains my conduct. I, therefore, attach a copy of the same letter. I regret that I have not found it possible to accept the advice given by His Lordship the Chief Justice. Moreover, I have been unable to accept the advice because I do not consider that I have committed either a legal or a moral breach by publishing Mr. Kennedy’s letter or by commenting on the contents thereof. I am sure that this Honourable Court would not want me to tender an apology unless it be sincere and express regret for an action which I have held to be the privilege and duty of a journalist. I shall therefore cheerfully and respectfully accept the punishment that this Honourable Court may be pleased to impose upon me for the vindication of the majesty of law. I wish to say, with reference to the notice served on Mr. Mahadeo Desai, the publisher, that he published it simply upon my request and advice.”Desai’s statement read thus: “With reference to the rule-nisi served upon me, I beg to state that I have read the statement made by the editor of Young India and associate myself, with the reasoning adopted by him in justification of his action. I shall therefore cheerfully and respectfully abide by any penalty that this Honourable Court may be pleased to inflict on me.”A three judge bench of Justices Marten, Hayward, Kajiji decided the contempt case. Justice Marten held that publication of the letter amounted to contempt. He observed that there were “some strange misconceptions in the minds of the respondents as to the legitimate liberties of a journalist”. The judge concluded thus:”We have large powers and in appropriate cases can commit offenders to prison for such period as we think fit and can impose fines of such amount as we may judge right. But just as our powers are large, so ought we, I think, to use them with discretion and with moderation, remembering that the only object we have in view is to enforce the due administration of justice for the public benefit.In the present case, the Court has very seriously considered whether it ought not to impose a substantial fine on one, if not both, of the respondents. But on the whole, I think it sufficient for the Court to state the law in terms which I hope will leave no room for doubt in the future, and to confine our order to severely reprimanding the respondents and cautioning them both as to their future conduct.”The other judges concurred with Justice Marten’s finding and conclusion. Justice Hayward wrote a concurring opinion and said:”They have expressed their inability to apologise formally but have at the same time represented their readiness to submit to any punishment meted out to them. It is probable that the Editor, the respondent Gandhi, did not realize that he was breaking the law and there would be do doubt, if that were so, that it was not realised by his publisher, the respondent Desai. The respondents seem to have posed not as law-breakers but rather as passive resistors of the law. It would, therefore, be sufficient, in my opinion, to enunciate unmistakeably for them the law in these matters, to severely reprimand them for their proceedings and to warn them of the penalties imposable by the High Court.In short, the High Court found the charges proved, but it chose to close the contempt case by ‘severely’ reprimanding Gandhi and Desai and cautioning them both as to their future conduct.Click here to Read/Download Judgment Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

R. Kelly arrested on federal child pornography charges, US attorney says

first_imgScott Olson/Getty Images(CHICAGO) — Musician R. Kelly has been arrested on federal child pornography and obstruction of justice charges. The U.S. attorney’s office in Chicago said the pop star was arrested Thursday on a 13-count indictment. The singer was outside while walking his dog when he was arrested, Kelly’s publicist told ABC News. Separately, a five-count indictment has been handed up from the Eastern District of New York in Brooklyn that charges him with racketeering.“R Kelly was arrested in Chicago tonight on charges contained in a 13-count indictment returned today in the Northern District of Illinois,” the attorney’s office said in a statement late Thursday. “The indictment includes charges of child pornography and obstruction of justice.”It is not clear as of yet what other charges are included in the indictment.Federal agents searched R. Kelly’s home in Trump Tower Chicago Friday morning. Kelly was arrested by the New York Police Department, which will eventually bring him to New York City, a police source told ABC News. For now, a law enforcement official told ABC News that Kelly is expected to face charges in Chicago before being extradited to Brooklyn. He is expected to be arraigned in Chicago later Friday. Darrell Johnson, Kelly’s representative, said he will hold a press conference in Atlanta at 9:30 a.m. Eastern time Friday.The charges are the latest in a number of legal issues for Kelly this year. The singer, whose real name is Robert Kelly, is also facing 10 counts of felony criminal sexual abuse involving four alleged victims, after being arrested by the Cook County Sheriff’s Department in March. He has pleaded not guilty to those charges, some of which date back to 1998.Kelly last appeared in court in Chicago on June 26, when prosecutors handed over a DVD allegedly containing pornographic images of the singer with a minor.“We’ll see what it shows,” Kelly’s lawyer, Steve Greenberg, said outside the courthouse last month.A trial has not been set, but the judge said an early 2020 date is likely. Kelly’s next court hearing in that case is scheduled for Aug. 15.The 52-year-old has always denied allegations of sexual misconduct.He has also dealt with a number of child support issues. He was jailed for almost a week in March for failure to pay support dating back eight months for his three children with his ex-wife, Andrea “Drea” Kelly.The singer was acquitted of prior child pornography charges in 2008, five years after initially being arrested over a video that purported to show the singer with an underage girl.There was a renewed interest in Kelly’s alleged misdeeds following a miniseries that aired earlier this year on Lifetime, called Surviving R. Kelly, and featuring interviews with alleged victims and family members.The family of Joycelyn Savage, R. Kelly’s girlfriend, met with federal investigators and provided them with physical evidence that they believe contributed to the case against Kelly, according to the family’s lawyer, Gerald Griggs. Savage’s parents appeared in the Lifetime documentary. “We are satisfied that Federal Authorities believed the families and survivors that were victims of Robert Kelly,” Griggs said in a statement. “We will be traveling to Chicago soon to reunite with Joycelyn. We thank the jurors and prosecutors that returned the indictment against R Kelly. We are hopeful that justice will be served in this case.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Code to curb smoking

first_imgCode to curb smokingOn 1 Oct 2000 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. HSE recommends approved code of practice to limit the effects of passivesmoking in the workplaceThe Health and Safety Commission has opted for an approved code of practiceto regulate passive smoking at work. “We carefully considered the different options including continuingwith a voluntary approach, before deciding the best way of protecting the 3million people still exposed to environmental tobacco smoke was through anACOP,” said HSC chairman Bill Callaghan. “It will enable everyone – employers and employees, smokers andnon-smokers – to know exactly where they stand with regard to workplace smokingand ensure compliance with health and safety law.’ Callaghan was at pains to stress the HSC is not proposing a ban on workplacesmoking. “It is rather a recognition of the need to protect those workersexposed to environmental tobacco smoke and to build on existing goodpractice,” he said. The code would give authoritative guidance on employer obligations underhealth, safety and welfare law regarding passive smoking at work. It would have special legal force similar to that of the Highway Code.Failing to follow the code would not be an offence in itself, but an employerwill need to demonstrate that equally effective measures have been adopted tosignal compliance with the law. The move was welcomed by the TUC. “This is a sensible compromise whichwill help cut down on staff turnover and sickness absence,” it announced. The recommendations now await government approval.

Secretary of State green lights another To Let board ban

first_imgHome » News » Secretary of State green lights another To Let board ban previous nextRegulation & LawSecretary of State green lights another To Let board banLetting agents in five mainly students areas of Lincoln will in April onwards not be able to use signboards outside homes.Nigel Lewis22nd January 201901,055 Views Lincoln is the latest city to be given permission by the government to implement a total ban on To Let boards.A year ago City of Lincoln Council applied to the Secretary of State to prevent agents putting up boards in five key student areas after local officials found some roads featured boards on a quarter of all properties.A consultation was launched and of those who responded, 85 out of 135 called for a complete ban.The council has called the boards an ‘eyesore’ and a ‘blight’ in its public statements about the ban and has rejected the arguments of local letting agents who said people relied on the boards to find out which properties are available.Lincoln council says potential tenants can both visit and phone branches or ‘look online’ to find properties.“Any letting sign should be a temporary feature but, when signs are left up too long in areas containing high numbers of rental properties, they can begin to dominate the street scene,” says the council’s planning manager Kieron Manning (left).“We became aware that some signs were staying almost all-year-round and this was beginning to have a negative effect on the look and feel of our streets.“We are very pleased that government has listened and agreed to allow us to implement the ban. We don’t expect this to have a negative impact on the city’s rental market as searches are now mostly done online.”Following the decision to give Lincoln the go-ahead, the ban is due to begin on April 8th this year. Lincoln City of Lincoln council to let boards January 22, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
